They say you always want what you can’t have —hugot—but in this case, it’s more than that. In celebration of TUMI’s 40th year, renowned industrial designer Kenneth Cobonpue designed a one-of-a-kind luggage that's way ahead of its time. Experimenting with the brand’s iconic FXT Ballistic Nylon® material and combining it with hand-stitched organic bamboo reed, the award-winning furniture designer and manufacturer from Cebu was able to create the "Vortex" bag.
"The use of natural organic materials and TUMI’s ballistic nylon celebrates our constant connection with nature whilst we’re on the move. Wherever we travel in the world it reminds us to respect our environment and surroundings, and to tread as lightly as possible," says Cobonpue.
The ingenious fusion of nature and technology alone makes this bag a much-coveted piece. Too bad that it's not for sale. However, travel bugs need not be disappointed. As part of the brand's 40th year celebration, a limited edition collection aptly called 1975 is available for purchase!
